Mike Simpson's Design & Education Portfolio
Designer & Teacher
Welcome. I’m Mike, a designer and educator from Toronto. I create websites and e-learning for a variety of clients. People know me as a designer, teacher, blogger, photographer and community builder.
Some milestones arrived! I founded Tdot.com in 1998. I’m amazed and grateful to have been building websites for 25 years! Also, in 2022, I celebrated another special anniversary – working in teaching and training for two decades.
Happy 2023! Stay healthy and enjoy your year!
Why work with me?
I am a creative with equal parts tech and people skills
I’m a designer and a teacher. Using WordPress and professional software is important but so is the client brief, so you can tell me about yourself. I approach all projects with the philosophy that communication and design are equally important. Let’s work together and create something amazing.
